    Default Calling Out Polybutylene

    Have seen homes with what appears to be polybutelyne under sinks. In cases where the main lines are copper, do you call out the poly?

    If you are asking about the gray or white plastic supply risers for sinks and toilets, then no, I do not write that up.
    I have not heard of any problems with them.

    Does the poly visibly connect to copper under the sink? If so, then as long as there is no leaking/corrosion/etc, don't call it out. If the poly goes into the wall and you can't see the connection, I would put it into the report as an unknown. It could have the older fittings that have been a problem.
